ISIS supporters have already expressed delight at the stabbing attack in London that left one American woman dead and five people injured.
In the hours after the attack ISIS linked accounts on social media were soon reporting the news of the stabbings in a tourist hotspot in the heart of the British capital.
According to Michael S. Smith II, a US based expert for the Congressional Taskforce on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, IS-linked social media channels spread the news in the early hours of this morning UK time.
The ISIS-linked group account on private social media channels linked to on Twitter published pictures on the aftermath of the attack.
The Arabic-language account, called the ‘News Publishing Service’, which has a logo incorporating a rifle said: ‘Here you have a picture of the site where the stabbing took place, Russell Square in the centre of ‘Christendom’ London.’
It was also reported that an Arabic-language account wrote that ‘It’s nice to wake up to such news’.
Mr Smith wrote on Twitter that the volume of communications in ISIS-linked social media accounts was ‘low’.
